Sublime with Rome just announced their biggest headlining tour to date. The band recently finished tracking a brand new album that follows their 2011 debut Yours Truly. A summer 2015 release is planned with more details coming soon.
Last year the event boasted a day of performances by SLIGHTLY STOOPID, STEPHEN MARLEY and G. LOVE & SPECIAL SAUCE along with several others, including local legends Bong Hits for Jesus. The Hemp Heals Music Festival combines several different styles of music and the power of the artists to promote the positive benefits of hemp as a superfood and industrial product. With such powerhouses gracing the stage, the event is sure to be packed with performances that everyone can enjoy.
The Hemp Heals Music Festival is dedicated to promoting healthy living through the use of hemp products and other natural and organic goods. The mission of the foundation is to promote earth conscious industry and consumerism in responsible ways which also promote individual health and wellness. This is accomplished by reaching out and educating the public through a music festival that promotes eco friendly products and businesses. All funds raised for the festival will benefit the non-profit organization called The Hemp Heals Foundation which was started by Riley Cote and Michelle Miller of The Nouveau Image in 2011.
The festival will also feature a vendor area for participating businesses to promote their healthy, sustainable, organic and hemp products. The vendor space is committed to products that further the public knowledge of holistic living, in addition to the incredible diversity and abilities of the fascinating hemp plant (OVER 25,000 known uses). Hemp is a great renewable resource that can be made into anything from clothing, food products, paper and more. Please contact Hemp Heals (contact information below) to participate in their vending opportunities.
